Bath Products Review: You Are Amazing and Mayfair Soap Foundry

I always enjoy trying new bath and body products.  I have recently received samples from two brands I haven’t tried before — You Are Amazing and Mayfair Soap Foundry. They are two amazing and affordable brands that you can find at your nearest Target stores!

I tend to love lighter florals and fruity scents for the spring and summer. The products below are perfect for hydrating skin for the warmer weather and they all smell amazing:

You Are Amazing is the fun-loving, boldly scented basic bath and body brand giving women a positive start to each and every day. We know you’re a rockstar, so we created a line of vibrant scents, awesome products, and bold designs to start your day off right.

We’re driven by a mission to inspire and empower, so we built this ideal right into our brand from the get-go by partnering with Girl Up.

From You Are Amazing:

Smooth It Out Coconut Water Exfoliating Body Scrub & Wash ($3.99 USD) — Pumice gently exfoliates away dry, flaky skin giving pores room to breath while leaving skin cleansed and smelling of exotic, sweet coconut water. The Body Scrub is microbead-free to save water wildlife and the environment.

Final Spritz Blooming Bouquet Body Mist ($3.99 USD) — Add that perfect final touch on the way out the door. Bursting with a soft, floral fresh scent and formulated with a touch of Aloe Leaf Juice to soothe and hydrate dry skin, you can be extra confident and smelling great every day.

Hello Beautiful Skin Mango Papaya Body Lotion ($3.99 USD) — Fruity and tropical with a hint of vacation, this  moisturizes every nook of your body to keep skin feeling soft and smooth every day. Formulated with aloe to soothe and hydrate, dry skin doesn’t stand a chance.

What I think: All three of these products smell fresh and natural.  The scrub has very gentle exfoliators and it really smells like fresh coconut water! The mango and papaya scented lotion is very hydrating and sweet-smelling.  I think both of these items are a great deal for the price.

My very favorite of the three was the one I didn’t think I’d like, the Blooming Bouquet mist!  I always think floral is going to be strong, but this is soft and smells like fresh flowers.  I spray all over in the morning and it makes me happy.  LOVE!

Melding posh British sensibility with modern design, Mayfair Soap foundry is a refined assortment of luxury bath and body care products crafted with premium ingredients, sophisticated scents, and a giveback philosophy. Mayfair delivers beautiful products to pause and pamper oneself in refined relaxation.

From Mayfair Soap Foundry:

Sugar Scrub in Grapefruit Bergamot ($8.99 USD) — Reveal brilliantly glowing, revitalized, and restored skin with this gentle body sugar scrub. Natural pumice and sugar crystals work together to delicately exfoliate rough, dry skin. The bright and citrusy essence of Grapefruit and Bergamot is perfectly balanced with notes of Magnolia and Carnation to create a beautifully uplifting and rejuvenating fragrance.

Body SoufflĂ© in Sea Lily Jasmine ($8.99 USD) — This decadent, lightweight moisturizing body soufflĂ© delivers lavish hydration to all areas of the body. The delicately whipped blend of Cocoa Butter and Sunflower Oil lightly envelopes skin bringing a nourishing treat to the skin and senses. This sweet floral aroma delights senses with a fusion of White Lily, Jasmine, Rose, and a touch of soft, sweet berries for an unforgettably sumptuous fragrance.

What I think: The Grapefruit Bergamot scent is so bright! It is a very gentle sugar scrub.  (Self) tanning season is coming soon and I need to start exfoliating my dry winter skin now! I also really like the big jars both items come in.

I also love the Sea Lily Jasmine scent. It’s almost like a green floral.  The lotion is very fluffy, like whip cream, but it doesn’t rub or soak right in.  It stays on the skin for a while before it is absorbed.  If you are not in a rush in the morning after your shower, or if you want to use it at night, it should work fine.
